Michael Malone and Marko Gojanovic, operators of hot watering hole SL at The James Royal Palm., celebrated their birthdays Friday night with a motley crew of bold-facers including Brooklyn Nets player Kris Humphries, model Nina Agdal, martial artist Alistair Overeem and former pro tennis player Jennifer Capriati. The celebration began with a dinner at CATCH Miami before heading over to SL for the new weekly, delightfully named “FUX Friday” party, where they held court at a table next to the DJ booth. Humphries seized the mic to shout out the two men: “Happy Birthday to two of the greatest guys in the world and two of my best friends ... you guys are like brothers to me.”

Wilmer Valderrama, in town for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s college readiness program, Ready to Lead at Miami Dade College, joined his friend DJ Aliyo Friday afternoon at the Shore Club, jumping on the turntables and spinning a few songs for pool guests.

Seen at Prime 112 Saturday were University of Louisville head coach Rick Pitino and, separately, former football player turned NFL Network analyst Michael Irvin.

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James took their home court advantage to a splashy level this weekend, relaxing with their families Saturday afternoon first at the Delano, where they were seen spending time swimming at the beach with their sons, and later at the SLS Hotel South Beach’s Hyde Beach pool, where they ordered sushi and soaked in some more sun.

Cash Money Records and YMCMB (Young Money Cash Money Billionaires for short) co-CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams launched his new Grand Touring Vodka Thursday night at Mokai, drawing out Miami hip-hop heavy hitters including Mack Maine and Prospect.

Platinum-selling rapper 2 Chainz partied at Dream nightclub in Miami over the weekend. Our spies tell us that the rapper ordered eight bottles of Hennessy V.S in honor of his recent eight BET Award nominations. The rapper danced as the Hennessy girls paraded around his table with the bottles high in the air sporting sparklers.

Rob Delaney, named the Funniest Person on Twitter by Comedy Central, has teamed up with Miami Beach-based All Things Equal, Inc. to create the first board game based on — you got it —Twitter. Rob Delaney’s War of Words is, says a publicist, “an absurd game of fill-in-the-blanks, open ended questions and head-to-toe challenges related to Delaney’s popular tweets.”
